The Phonotheque of Animal Voices was created by Dr. Boris Nikolaevich Veprintsev (1928–1990) on the basis of an array of sound recordings of birds’ voices, made by him in nature and published on vinyl records. This work has brought him worldwide fame. Decree of the Presidium of the USSR Academy of Sciences No. 37-186 of 26 January 1973. Phonotheka was established as a subdivision of the Institute of Biological Physics of the USSR Academy of Sciences in the Pushchino Scientific Center for Biological Research. Since 1991 Phonotheka is named by B.N. Veprintsev. The Phonotheka was transferred to the IPEE RAS by the Order of the Presidium of RAS No. 12-300-197 in 22 of March, 2007.

More than one hundred biologists transferred their records to the Veprintsev Phonotheka. Today we have more than 27.5 thousand phonograms. Among them there are 500 mammalian records and 26000 bird voices with their geographical, seasonal and gender variability. The sound library also features the sounds of insects, amphibians, reptiles, fish and landscape sound recordings. Archives of sound recordings of nature are available in many developed countries of the world. The Veprintsev Phonotheka, the largest in Northeast Eurasia, ranks 9th among them in terms of the number of phonograms. According to current systematic lists, there are 844 bird species in the former USSR. The Phonotheka has records for 640 species (76% of species). In addition, there are original field materials recorded in Mongolia. More than 30 endemic and rare species and 26 species listed in the Red Data Book of the USSR are represented in the Phonotheque. Another 151 species (18%) have phonograms from foreign sources. The collection is widely used for basic science, education and conservation work.
